Re: The LEGO Movie? Yes, THE LEGO MOVIE.
Not sure if this is similar, but if you go to a Legoland center, they have a 3D theater with little short films. I took my 5 yo son earlier this year, and there was a short about a young boy going on a fetch quest to defeat an evil wizard and it was fairly entertaining. If they used those films as testing grounds for both technique and story, then this movie could turn out fairly well.
